Write for Highlights  

Posted by: TRochelle in , , ,

Bouncing back to writing for a moment, I wanted to shed some light on Highlights for Kids. I actually remember Highlights from my youth (yes I can remember back that far). I find it amazing that Highlights takes submissions but its even more amazing that I am just now posting this information. (Put the tomatoes down and read further...geez so violent.)

Have you ever thought that you would love to write a book but you really do not have the time? The answer to that dilemma is short stories. There are not that many places that openly accept children's short stories but Highlights is a wonderful place to begin.

Warning: If you sell your work to Highlights, then they buy ALL rights to your work, copyright included.
No previously published work accepted.
No writers under the age of 16
No emailed of faxed submissions

Now we have all the warnings out of the way, Highlights accepts fiction, rebus, verse, nonfiction, craft ideas, fingerplays, action rhymes, and puzzles. Each piece of work features its own dollar amount and guidelines. Guidelines are available upon request.

All submissions should be mailed to:
Send submissions to
Manuscript Coordinator
Highlights for Children
803 Church Street
Honesdale, PA 18431

Pay details as well as descriptions of work and guidelines are available at the Highlights for Kids website
